If you like notes of chocolate and cedar in your smoke then your search ends with these CAO America cigars. The cigar’s burn brings a rich, chewy smoke loaded with creamy, oaky nuances, with a short, but pleasantly sweet finish. The cigars are decidedly international what with a blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan, Italian and American tobaccos. Did we mention Italian and American? Yes, we did! Probably that’s what makes them one of the finest cigars out there. The American-grown, oily and thick Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro and the blemish less Connecticut shade leaf are used for the wrapper and binder respectively. Evenly constructed, the cigars allow for a perfect draw allowing their rich aroma to come through.
Presented with a patriotic fervor elicited by the pin-stripe format and the festive display, the CAO America cigars are available in three variants – Potomac, Monument and Landmark. Each of the variants offers a distinctive flavor. For instance, the Potomac has a hint of black pepper flavor. The sizes vary from the longest and thinnest, the Monument, at 6 1/4 x 54 and the thickest, the Landmark, with a ring size of 60. The Potomac is 5 inches long with a 56 ring size. The cigars are one of those that definitely require a supporting brew, especially after a substantial steak dinner. Although somewhat patriotic in branding, these stogies are good enough to smoke through the year and not just on the 4th of July!
